Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio, the newest telecom company, announced on Friday it has notched an unprecedented 72 million paid subscribers, and extended by 15 days its rock-bottom priced data offer under Prime membership.
The company, whose free extended promotional offer came to an end on march 31, also announced a complimentary offer for three months for those who paid Rs 303 prior to April 15.
Jio said it has extended the deadline for purchasing Jio’s Rs 303 (and other) plans till April 15th, “considering the unprecedented demand”.
“This extension will provide the necessary breathing room for users to avoid service disruption during the transition from free to paid services. Customers who could not enrol for JIO PRIME by 31st March for whatever reason can still do so by paying Rs 99 along with their first purchase of Jio’s Rs 303 and other plans till 15th April,” the statement said.
